Ben Samples – Snowstorm EP

time May 2nd by John-Michael authorTags: , , , , , , , , ,


May 18th, 2010 will be the day I believe Ben Samples will begin his Legendary status. Samples is one half (Fisk the other half) of the live remix project Fresh2Death/Girlfriend Bullshit that is based out of Boulder, CO.

Samples is on top of the game and is ready to explode. He is a prolific crunk glitch-hop producer. He brings it hard with his bass-heavy remixes of your favorite club anthems. Ben started his DJ career in 2006 when he picked up a weekly variety radio show for CU Boulder’s KVCU.  He played many styles and genres, with a focus on dance music and hip hop. At the end of the day if anyone ask me what is glitch-hop or what does glitch-hop sounds like I point them in the direction of Mr.Ben Samples.

Samples is a member of the Denver Bass Squad, which is the essential crew that runs the bass scene in the Denver/Boulder area. It is worth mentioning that DBS will be a crew you will all know about soon… Spectre, Fisk, and Samples have been on a rampage releasing serious bombs! Don’t be surprised when you see the top selling tracks on there all from DBS members on the Additech charts.

Pick up the new EP put out by Mochipet’s label Daly City! It’s on pre-release here & check out Samples mini-mix of the EP!

S.P.E.C.T.R.E. – Bad Girls Go To Hell EP

time April 24th by John-Michael authorTags: , , , , , , , , ,


Reuben Garst is S.P.E.C.T.R.E! This man is a hidden superstar. I had the pleasure of getting to book him for my first event ever at WMC this year. This guy is the real deal people. A member of Denver Bass Squadron (DBS) & Founder of Basslab. This man does it all from production, DJ, promoter, and one BMF.

This release is straight heat!
I’ve been waiting for this to come out for awhile. Ever since I heard VIP Bass ft. Ben Samples appear on Soundcloud I knew that Spectre had to be part of the event I was planning.

He absolutely tore it up at Slippery! I’ll never forget that mash up of Joker vs Biggie he dropped that night. Not only is this man a dope DJ and producer he’s a great human being. He spit some serious knowledge and tips on everything. Without a doubt I’m glad I had the chance to meet him and become friendly with him.

Best of luck to him, he definitely bust his ass for the community!
Be sure to pick up the release over at Addictech!

Mad Zach & R2 The Specialist – Wolf Spider

time April 16th by Pierre authorTags: , , , , ,


Artist: Mad Zach & R2 The Specialist
Title: Wolf Spiders
Cat # Muti058
UPC # 705105139807
File under: Glitch Hop / Dubstep / Crunk / Breakbeat

01 Soul Fire 3:09
02 Sinister 4:06
03 Subeater 3:46
04 Mashington 4:08
05 Speaker Gargle 4:05
06 Big D 3:38

09 Interlude 1:20
10 8 Bit Chinoscillator 3:27
11 Christopher Columbus 3:42
12 Drowning 5:28

I’m feeling that I just repet myself when it comes to releases from Muti Music, stating that they are the awesome and so one… But that what I feel. Muti might be the label out there with the highest standard when it comes to releases, even though Dov seems to spit out release they are all still truly excellent.

The latest in line in a full length album from two persons that goes under the monickers Mad Zach & R2 The Specialist. These guy stands on a base of Dubstep but mixes it up quite a lot; you get influences ranging from Techno to Glitch (hop) and you get some funky vibes all executed with perfection. First listen to the track “Big D” here below and then you make sure you buy it!

Slippery – Miami’s Glitch Night! Fridays at Club Cinema

time April 15th by John-Michael authorTags: , , , , , , , , , ,


Miami Glitch presents the return of Slippery! We’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback from our WMC event, Slippery. We’ve teamed up with the crew who does DOWN at Club Cinema for a monthly event!

DOWN was a weekly event on Sundays at Cinema but officially switches to every Friday now. They will remain downstairs bringing you the best in Dubstep. Every last Friday of the month Slippery will be taking over the upstairs area for some banging Glitch Hop, IDM, and BASS!

April 30th 2010 marks the beginning of all these upcoming changes.

DOWN will be bringing in Richie August from Chicago. He has been doing some big things and has teamed up with Claw to form Hulk. It will be a special treat for Miami. The full line up downstairs includes: Richie August, Gooddroid, The Reazin, Grey Ghost, Ashworth, Chuck Nasty, Somejerk, & Bunnyfuzz.

Slippery will be treating Miami with a Dub Hop duo residing in Phoenix, Protohype. Protohype brings a sound that mixes typical dubstep with some glitchy crunk hop hop beats. They will not disappoint! Mr. Feathers will also be doing a special set for the night. He is excited to take up the challenge of doing Glitch Hop something he has never played before. The full line up includes: Protohype, Mr.Feathers, Afro Monk, Claro, The Munkz, El Topo, and C85.

Upstairs will also feature live art from Miami’s own Kazilla! She has been causing quite a stir with her lovely painting skills. Don’t miss out on this special event!

Hopefully this will mark a special time where Miami will have a new restructured weekly spot to check out all sorts of fresh new bass music. When Slippery isn’t upstairs doing the glitch-hop stuff Miami Glitch will also be running a unique lounge night. We hope to bring you a chill laid back groove while we play some hip hop, trip-hop, downtempo, and many artist from the infamous Ninjatune label. Our mission is to bring something new and different. Starting a lounge trip-hop night has always been a goal of mine and hope we can bring you a fresh new weekly hang out spot.

Here is a short 10min mini mix put together by Claro to show you all what type of sound you can expect to hear at the event!

Fisk – Puzzle Pieces Mix

time April 10th by John-Michael authorTags: , , , , , , , ,

fisk-puzzle-pieces-mixGreg Fisk, is clearly a force to be reckoned with. You may know him by being 1/2 of Fresh2Death aka Girlfriend Bullshit. He resides right now in Colorado the mecca for Glitch Hop. He put out an EP earlier in 2009 and is back for some more with this new mix, Puzzle Pieces.

I had the pleasure of getting to know him and jam out with him quite a bit during WMC this year. This guy has to be one of the realest and straight up guys I’ve met so far in this endeavor of music.  Don’t sleep on this guy because I promise you Ben Samples and Greg Fisk are on the way to the top of the game and their duo will always be remembered when you speak of glitch hop.

Check out this free mix on Fisk’s bandcamp!
Also look out for Samples new EP, Snowstorm, to drop some serious bombs!
